20 Mar #21emBODY | BREASTS

This is the last week of the #21emBODY painting challenge -- and wowsers! What a journey it has been. I could not have predicted the transformations and a-ha moments I've received by pouring my attention and creativity onto my body. It's been both exhausting and exhilarating at times!

In my junior year of high school, my friend Becky and I went one Summer to see the Grateful Dead play. This was two years before Jerry Garcia had died and during a total hippie dippie phase of my life. We got up super early and drove for hours to arrive 2 miles from the concert site stuck in bumper-to-bumper stand still traffic, lined up in the middle of farms and corn fields. On top of...
